Filed under: Music Minute

beck defriended two new albums

FINALLY!

After five YEARS without new music, Beck is back with some stellar fresh sounds!

But being the AH-mazing musician that he is, the eclectic artist is going to have not one but TWO completely new and unique albums for fans to get lost in — adding a sort of spin-off to his HIGHly coveted 2008 album, Modern Guilt, along with his previously announced acoustic compilation.

Could it get ANY better??!

Why, yes! It will!

Beck has also announced that he will have six U.S. acoustic summer tour dates that will include an on-stage date with none other than Bob Dylan and Wilco in New York!

And for those who CANNOT wait to see the new material live, Beck brings us Defriended — a special treat that won't even appear on either album.

Oh, man. Does he know how to spoil fans or what??!

Ch-ch-check out the deliciously experimental song …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Facebook De-Friended By Nearly 6 Million People In U.S. Last Month!

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness BlitzFacebook

facebook loses nearly 6 million us users

Uh oh.

Last month, nearly 6 million people in the U.S. deleted their Facebook accounts, bringing the total number of active users in the United States from 155.2 million to 149.4 million.

Canada also lost 1.52 million users, and the U.K., Norway, and Russia lost over 100,000 users each.

Here's what tracking service Inside Facebook's Eric Eldon had to say about the drop:

"By the time Facebook reaches around 50 percent of the total population in a given country (plus or minus, depending on Internet access rates in that country), growth generally slows to a halt. So far, Facebook has been able to make up stalls and losses with big gains in heavily populated developing countries like Mexico, Brazil, India and Indonesia."

And here's what CEO of Law360.com Magnus Hoglund had to say about it:

"From my experience, I get the sense that being on Facebook is not cool anymore. The early adopters and trend-setters are moving away. [But] these are also exactly the type of people brand advertisers want to reach; if they are leaving, it doesn't look good for Facebook."

What do U think? Are these drops normal? Or is Facebook on its way out?
